[533] According to Spraker's "Our Boone Families":
"The immediate ancestors of the American Boon family resided in the Village of Bradninch, about eight miles from the City of Exeter, in Devonshire, England. George Boone, the grandfather of Daniel Boone, was born in the year 1666 in Stoak, a village near the City of Exeter. His father had been a blacksmith but he became a weaver. He married Mary Maugridge, daughter of John Maugridge and Mary (Milton) Maugridge, who was three years his junior. This couple, professed Quakers, became the parents of nine children, all born in Bradninch, one of whom, Squiare Boone, was the father of the subject of this sketch."

"The First 5 Generations of the George Boone Family"
The Boone Society, Inc., October 2006
"The Boone Society has the marriage record of George III & Mary Maugridge (note different
spelling of "Moggridge" on original old English hand-written document below) performed at St.
Disens Church in Bradninch: 'George Boone married unto Mary Moggridge the 16th day of August
1689'. The Boone Society also has the baptism record of Mary from St. Disens Church as
follows: '1668 Mary ye daughter of John Moggridge baptized ye 23rd day of December'."

"The Boone Family; a Genealogical History"
Hazel Atterbury Spraker

(Reprinted, Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, MD. 1974)
pp19-23: "George Boone Third (son of George Boone Second and wife Sarah Uppey), born in 1666 at
Stoak, England, a village near the City of Exeter in Devonshire; died 27 July (Old Style) or 7 Aug.
(New-Style), 1744, in Exeter township, Berks Co., Pa., aged seventy-eight years. Married Mary Maugridge
(b. 1669 in Bradninch, England, eight miles from Exeter in Devonshire), a daughter of John and Mary (Milton)
Maugridge. George Boone and wife Mary were members of the Society of Friends (Quakers;) in Callumpton,
Devonshire, from which Meeting they took a letter of recommendation to the Society of Friends in America.
Whether they were dissatisfied with their condition as Quakers in England, or whether they were impelled by
that desire for adventure and travel which was later so strongly manifested in Daniel Boone and his brothers,
will never be known. On the 17th of August, 1717, with six children, George Boone and his wife left the town of
Bradninch in Devonshire and went to Bristol, where they set sail for America."

"The Jess M. Thompson Pike County History"
Thompson, Jess M.
Pittsfield, IL; Pike County Historical Society; 1967
Chapter 32: "George Boone (the third known Boone of that name) and his wife, Mary Maugridge
Boone, left Devonshire, England, August 17, 1717, to take ship at Bristol for America. They arrived
in Philadelphia October 10, 1717, and were met there by two sons and a daughter, George (fourth
of the name), Squire (destined to father Daniel) and Sarah Boone, George Boone III, first Boone
ancestor in America, had been a weaver in England."
